Kalahari: TIF district, ordinance pass
After an hour-long public hearing, council members voted 6-1 on two measures that set up the structure in city code for the distribution of Kalahari’s incentives package. The performance agreement that outlines those incentives will come up at a later meeting.
Councilwoman Debby Girvan cast the opposing vote.
During the hearing, four area residents spoke against the project, one didn’t take a position and 14 residents spoke in favor of the project, although three of those people also voiced support for Kalahari two weeks ago, at the first night of this hearing.
More on this in Wednesday’s paper.
